Oredson-Todd Woods to Lithia Park 2-20-17

Photos by Bob and John

18 enthusiastic hikers gathered at the Rite Aid lot to take part in the inaugural Trans-Ashland (aka South East passage). The weather cooperated with no rain and temperatures in the 50's. We drove to the Oredson Todd Woods trail head to start our hike across Ashland. Clay Creek was roaring so the group's leader helped everyone across. We stopped at the bridge crossing to marvel at the rushing wash of white water jetting down the rocks. Then we followed the trail up and around and past the White Rabbit TH. Down Park St and left onto the TID canal trail.We used the TID past Walker and then meandered through neighborhoods. We entered the woods at Liberty St park, then continued past Morton to Ashland Loops Rd.Then we made our dissent down into Lithia Park where again we found Ashland Creek absolutely roaring.

6 miles and nearly 3 hours from our start we had lunch at the trusty Brickroom. Then RVTD drove us back to Rite Aid. Our congenial group seemed to enjoy the first OT Woods to Lithia Park hike.
